    My wee man is over 5 weeks old and it feels like he is always hungry. I feed on demand as per health visitor but sometimes I feel like I may be over feed him. He’ll get 4 ounces of milk 7-8 times a day. When I tell other mothers this they are surprised he eats so much which confuses me? What does /did everyone else feed their wee babas at this stage being a newborn?

    My girl (4 weeks) is about the same, she has 100-120mls 7-8 times a day. And has been taking that much for nearly a week now. We’ve had enhanced care from midwives, so she’s been checked and weighed every few days and they are very happy with her weight and development.
